    2017 has been a momentous year

    for World Missions Ministries in

    many ways. As the year comes to

    a close, please allow me to

    express the gratitude of your

    IPHC missionary family to you

    for your love, passion for the lost,

    and great commission

    partnership. Together, we

    continue to make an indelible

    imprint on the ministry influence

    of the IPHC globally.

    The World Missions Ministries

    family wishes you and your family a

    blessed and joyous Christmas and

    a New Year filled with Hope and

    Joe and Maggie Delport have served as missionaries in Africa for over 25 years, and currently live in South Africa. Joe serves as the Regional Director for Southern Africa where he networks with national leaders and oversees projects.

    Joe serves as Director of Advance School of Ministry (ASOM), while Maggie does the administrative work. She also performs similar duties for the Africa Development Center in Krugersdorp.

    Their vision is to enlarge the Kingdom of God by training, equipping, and releasing leaders for the end time harvest.

    As the Delports continue to impact Southern Africa with faithful obedience to the Great Commission, please pray for continued health, safety, and monthly support.

    'THE LINK' PRAYER GUIDEThe Link has served as a daily prayer guide to familiarize our

    International Pentecostal Holiness Church family with our

    missionaries and global ministry footprint since its inception in

    the early 1980s.

    A copy of The Link Prayer Guide should be in the mail to all IPHC

    pastors, along with other pertinent WMM 2018 emphases. The

    Link prayer network has become a global prayer movement that

    is a powerful intercessory prayer force today.

    If you would like a copy of WMMs 2018 Link Prayer Guide, please

    contact your Conference Missions Director or our office directly at

    888-474-2966. We would be honored to have you join this global

    prayer network.

    WOMENS MINISTRIES CHRISTMAS FOR MISSIONARIES EMPHASISWorld Missions is indebted to Mrs. Samantha Snipes, Director of

    Womens Ministries; Discipleship Ministries; and the women of

    the IPHC for their generosity in providing our Career, Missionary,

    and Retired Missionaries with a monetary Christmas gift. A total

    of $38,500 was expended/disbursed in gifts.

    For many of our missionaries and their family members, this is

    the only gift that they will receive this Christmas season. To say,

    thank you seems disingenuous, but please know that they, and

    we, are humbled by this expression of love and honor. You have

    modeled our faith family's seventh Core Value, GENEROSITY, with

    joy.

    God bless you and your families abundantly and may your

    generosity be reciprocated to you with abundance.

    Emerging Leaders Summit By Janene Wooten

    Being one of the new ones to join the group, I was not exactly sure of what to expect when the Emerging Leaders Summit came around a few weeks ago. I was going to a country I had never been to, with a group of people that I was unfamiliar with, and I was a brand-new missionary to a field I am still trying to adjust to. However, I can say with confidence that it is a weekend that I will never forget. As we sat around that table, you could feel the Spirit of the Lord stirring in each one of us as we shared the visions we had for our fields and the people that we are honored to serve. We could be honest and vulnerable as we shared our victories and our struggles. We cried together, we laughed together, we worshiped together, and we prayed for each other. As we grew closer, it was evident that though we were individuals working in separate ministries and countries, the Lord was bringing out His purposes and connecting all of us in ways we could not see.

    A float from the Barrineau Parade

    On Saturday, December 2nd, the Barrineau Pentecostal Holiness Church in the South Carolina Conference hosted their annual Christmas parade. Over 1,500 people attended this event which featured over 75 floats. Each year several thousand dollars are raised for the Global Outreach Offering through their efforts. Commendations to Pastor Bobby Floyd and Missions Director Stan McKenzie for their leadership in supporting world missions.

    WOMEN'S CONFERENCEEsther Helland, an IPHC career missionary to

    Brazil, recently had the opportunity to speak

    during two sessions at a womens conference.

    During the first session, Esther shared a

    testimony of a time when God rescued her from

    drowning as she floated, unable to swim, for two

    hours in a branch of the Amazon River.

    The second session was titled The

    Transformation Begins with Me. During this

    session, Esther described the stages of a

    butterflys transformation. She used this visual

    to explain the transformation that each person

    is processing through with God, and encouraged

    the women through a few steps to continuously

    pursue God so that their transformation process

    would not be delayed.

    Family NightELI Project (Every Lifes Important) is a

    ministry to families with special needs children

    in the country of Wales. This ministry has several

    outreaches: Mens Connect, Women's

    Connect, Boys Night Out, Girls Day Out, and

    Family Connect (Family Night). Their primary

    outreach is FAMILY NIGHT. To ELI Project,

    outreach is more than an event. It is a bridge to

    make friends and to create a community that

    points to Christ. Family Nights are held twice a

    month in two locations: in the town of Neath and

    the city of Swansea. Parents chat over a hot cup

    of coffee, siblings interact, and kids and teens

    with special needs develop friendships. The

    environment is safe and accepting, and there is

    something to do for everyone. Creating an

    environment that caters to the unique needs of

    these families is opening doors to share the

    Gospel.

  • 2018 UNFUNDED ANTIOCH GRANT REQUESTS In its f irst Council Meeting for the new quadrennium, the World Missions Ministries

    Council reviewed requests for 2018 Antioch Grants. A total of $175,000 has been

    allocated in the World Missions Ministries 2018 Departmental Budget to assist with

    these requests, in addition to $342,000 allocated for direct f ield assistance through

    our Regional Directors. Both sources of direct f ield assistance are funded through

    your generous giving in the annual Global Outreach Offering.

    It is always a struggle to discern how to best allocate these Grants. One could make

    a compelling case for every request.

    Listed below you will f ind an overview of unfunded requests. These projects would

    all be deemed necessary and mission critical. The Council suggested that we share

    these requests with you. We are praying and believing that Jehovah Jireh will

    provide the f inancial resources so that none of these projects will go unfunded in

    2018.

    We thank you, in advance, for your prayerful and kind consideration. We are

    building Places of Hope together for the Kingdoms sake!
